This colour reel opens with scenes of inner-city redevelopment around Sharon Full Gospel Church, on Chorlton Rd in Manchester. Young people gamely undertake sponsored walks, from Liverpool to Manchester, and then from Macclesfield back to the church itself. Finally, we see the construction of the new youth centre, and younger members of the church singing.
